Stefanie Pitsch (née Simon) studied German and Romance linguistics and literature at the Universities of Stuttgart and Tübingen and worked as a student assistant at the department of German Linguistics (Prof. Veronika Ehrich) from 2008 until 2009. After her Master's degree ("Kausalitätsrelationen im Diskurs" / "Causal Relations in Discourse") she joined the research group "Desambiguating Discourse Connectives using Corpus-induced Semantic Relations" at the SFB 833 Tübingen. Since 2011 she has been working as a Research Assistant in the junior research group "Theoretical Linguistics" at the Courant Research Centre "Text Structures" Göttingen.
Her research concentrates on the semantic and syntactic analysis of German temporal connectives (working title: "Characteristics and limits of the temporal interpretation of German "nachdem". A semantic and syntactic analysis of the temporal subjunction"). Linguistic interests include semantics (modality, tense and aspect), syntax (analyses of syntactic integration) and corpus linguistics.
